Unlocking IT’s True Potential – Moving From a Cost Center to a Business Enabler with BoomiWhat is the fully-burdened cost for an employee to walk through the door and be productive? IT often takes the blame for poor employee productivity, and becomes stuck in the constant cycle of “keeping the lights on” or “putting out fires” – never moving beyond that to become a business enabler. IT struggles with numerous processes that touch multiple individuals across a myriad of teams attempting to integrate different legacy and modern applications/systems. Those processes involve manual steps, consume more time than desired, and introduce a fair amount of error – all of which zap productivity and detract from innovation. This session will discuss how Boomi can streamline those processes, integrate heritage and cloud-native applications, and eliminate many of the manual steps by creating end-to-end workflows, seamless application integration, as well as ensuring data quality and governance throughout the entire process – all helping unlock your IT organization’s true potential.

Best Practices When Implementing a Multi-Cloud StrategyMuch of the current IT Strategy is based on the basic assumptions that workloads will seldom change, and never move. But IT Executives are challenged with mixing an on-premise IT Infrastructure with multiple clouds, which goes against those very assumptions. Multi-Cloud offers a lot of advantages but can get very complex without a good framework and implementation strategy based on the principles of the digital era. It needs to balance the demands of the developers while creating business and IT capabilities that are focused on solving business outcomes. In this session we will review some of the lessons learned by leveraging customer stories and examples and help you build a solid digital foundation for your enterprise.
